Yeovil Town midfielder Ollie Bassett has netted his second goal in two games for Dorchester Town as he nears the end of his second month's loan at the Avenue Stadium. There wasn't quite as much joy behind the goal he scored on Tuesday night, given that the Magpies were 4-0 down against Cirencester Town at the time. He netted what was a consolation goal with 15 minutes of the match remaining, as he cut in from the flank and fired home from the corner of the area.
In the 4-1 defeat he almost helped his loan side make things interesting in the closing stages, as his free kick was a whisker away from picking up Franklyn Clarke inside the box, who the Dorset Echo consider he was providing a good partnership with, with much of Dorchester's attacking endeavours coming from the pair. Unfortunately by the time Bassett managed to find the net, the game was long gone with four conceded at the other end. Manager Mark Jermyn praised Bassett for scoring his third goal in ten games, although signed a note of caution that the teenager needed to work on other parts of his game:
"Ollie scored a good goal. He's a young player that has to work on other sides of his game. He's certainly a threat going forward but, in this league, he needs the other side of it as well. That is something he needs to adjust to."
For the second game running Joe Lea missed the match - the Echo indicate that he has picked up an injury, thus explaining his current absence, but don't state how long that is likely to keep him out for.
Dorchester Town: Murphy, Yates (Brookes 82), Smeeton, Martin, Oldring, Jermyn, Clarke, Morgan (Jerrard 60), Walker, Bassett, Blair
